My pendant

I made this pendant for Jackie .

The background is actually a piece of scrap paper I had down on my table to protect it from some inks and paints I was using to make backgrounds, when I was cleaning up I was about to throw the scrap paper in the bin when I noticed there were some pretty amazing effects on the paper so I cut the areas out to use at a later date. The rest of the pendant is made up from Basic Grey rub ons and a butterfly image taken from a crafty individuals image book. The layers were then sealed in with three layers of Glossy Accents.



I set the challenge to the girls on the forum to make pendants, the results were stunning so if you want to see some of the others check out the Chrysalis girls links in my side bar.

this is gorgeous Deb. lovely colours. the patterned edging adds a nice dimension and I like the way you've added beads either side of the jump ring.
